Teams needs an AUDIO alert option that can be turned on or off by the user when messages are posted to chat and channels just like a mobile text message alert sound.
Constantly missing messages or replying in a timely fashion because there is no audio alert
there is an audio alert but it's quiet & only 1 tone for all, would like to be able to customize
frustrating no alerts, missed plenty of mssgs from my provider!
I think there should be an option like Skype where you select for example, a cash register sound and ser it for one team you follow. If you have multiple teams ser up different sounds, so you don’t have to constantly looking at the screen to see what team is posting what. Making it easier if you hear a specific tone then just go in and see what ti going on in that team. Just like setting up ring tones on your phone you hear the “in-laws” tone and you know who’s calling with out having to “see” who it is.

Alerting in Teams needs improvement across the board. Popup alerts are hit and miss, and I've missed several important messages due to the lackluster notification system.
companies keep replacing skype for business with Teams... but Teams needs some more skype like configurable alerting!
yes, i keep missing messages and replying late because the notifications are very lacking.
